This is another one of our classic itineraries. The ultimate safari destination. Why? well, Tanzania has more land devoted to national parks & game reserves than any other wildlife destination in the world!

This adventure will take you to:

  • Mt Kilimanjaro: The Airport is situated at the base of Africa's' highest mountain, majestic start to a safari
  • Tarangire National Park: One of the last few homes to African wild dog & known for its large baobab trees. 
  • Lake Manyara National Park: The area infamous for its tree climbing lions. sometimes entire trees dotted with sleeping lions. Some of the most dense and ancient mahogany forest home to the largest horn bills, the black-and-white-casqued hornbill
  • Ngoro-ngoro craterA Bushtrek favourite is an early morning game drive along the link road. Our photographer Pritpal, loves the close quarter encounters of almost all animals along the narrow road linking the main gate to the crater rim. Most recently as January 2019 encountering 4 young male lions in this dense forest area.
  • Serengeti: Vast & home to all incredible safari animals. If you have watched The Lion King, then this is the movie set. 

 Stay at these beautiful lodges:

  • Tarangire Safari Lodge: Views of the meandering Tarangire river from the main deck, this has one of the best vantage points of any lodge on our books. The lodge grounds are home to some of 550 bird species that Tarangire is renowned. Lets not forget the dwarf mongoose
  • Serena Manyara: Perched on the first escarpment overlooking the lake, this lodge offers a luxurious welcome break when travelling to and from the Serengeti. Enjoy cocktails in or around the pool at sunset, magical.
  • Serena NgorongoroA stunning lodge crafted from volcanic rocks, the lodge belongs to the crater! The lodge grounds are frequented by leopards, caracal & serval cats - Often heard at night descending the roof of the cabins. a hair raising experience
